This is my setup right now. Made it on a budget of 600 last year. Now I'm looking to upgrade.
I mainly wanted to upgrade my CPU to an X4 and my GPU to a 6870. Is this a good idea? I wanted it to last at least a year or so and be able to play The Witcher 2 on a higher setting than medium. I realize I could always overclock my CPU(And buy a after-market fan), but would that be a better idea than upgrading to an X4? I've tried unlocking the cores before, but my computer crashed, so it seems like I have defective cores.
What do you guys suggest I do in the end? Thanks for all the help in advance.
